Phloem Studio's Peninsula Chair

Not long ago we took a look at deft joinery and fine form of the Laura desk by Portland, Oregon's Phloem Studio. Today, we've got an exclusive look (and a great video by Alex Olavarria of Quimby TV) of the firm's newest creation: the Peninsula chair. Wood, metal, and leather, the sling chair was inspired by a Jerry Johnson sling chair from 1964. Ben Klebba, honcho at Phloem, paired up with leather worker and studiomate Matt Pierce of Wood & Faulk on the sling. All told, the Peninsula has an appealing materiality. Just imagine how that leather will age and mellow into your favorite seat in the house. Keep an eye out for Phloem at ICFF this May. They'll be debuting the Peninsula chair at booth #1370.

Designer Close-Up: Lab Tasarim

Making their Tophane storefront work overtime, Lab Tasarim’s architects and interior designers also run a furniture showroom. The aesthetic is upcycled modern: On a second glance at the work, visitors realize that the designers have inventively Frankensteined their furniture together out of found objects—from bedsprings and tea trays to brass pipes and mismatched chair legs. Lab Tasarim exemplifies a recent trend toward using retail to showcase experiments concocted in the “laboratory” of a practice in the hopes of attracting potential architecture and interiors clients, who then also find gems with which to populate their newly fashioned spaces.
